he was pretty dominate. Against Auburn (video)
he looked really good. In fact FF to the 10:45 mark and tell me that isn't impressive.
Yes he looks average to me. He is a very solid run blocker when he's not lunging forward reaching with his arms. He's an average pass blocker. He moves okay but not great.
I don't see a first round LT in those videos. Anthony Steen actually looks like the better player in those two games. When I watch Kouandjio I see a solid RT. I have a 2nd round grade on him.
Personally, I would pass because of the knee, but I'm also jaded because of our history with injuries on the o line. I can see why someone would want him though.
